ICS Blog Hop - Recipe for Sale-a-Bration

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the first Inspire, Create, & Share blog hop of 2018!  The Occasions catalog, and Sale-a-Bration promotion went live today.  Have you seen all of the loveliness that there is in those two books yet?  Check with your demonstrator for a copy of the catalogs.  This month we are sharing recipes for Sale-a-Bration items.  Each project featured should cost about $50 to make, if you have no supplies.  Some of the projects feature Sale-a-Bration item suggestions.  My project does not feature any Sale-a-Bration items because I wanted you to be able to choose any item you like.

Here is my card:

I used a few new products from the Occasions catalog.  The greeting is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set.  I love this set.  It was made to coordinate with the Perennial Birthday project kit, but makes lovely cards all on it's own too.

The designer series paper I used is also a new product from the Occasions catalog.  This is from the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper.  This paper is from the Cake Soiree product suite.  One side of each sheet in this pack features this beautiful silver foil.  On this sheet, all the flowers and leaves are outlined in silver foil.

If you bought all of the supplies needed to make my card, you would be able to choose any level one Sale-a-Bration item that you wanted.  You can see a list of the items I used below.

That is all I have to share for today.
Next up on the hop, Tammy has something totally adorable to share.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
